Product description

Book Description

'A master of his discipline rightly hailed as one of the best historical novelists writing today' Daily Express

From the Inside Flap

Hailed a 'Hero of Rome', Valerius is not the man he once was - scarred both physically and emotionally by the battles he has fought. His sister is mortally ill. His father is in self-imposed exile. And neither is Rome the same city as the one he left.

The Emperor Nero grows increasingly paranoid. Those who seek power for themselves whisper darkly in the emperor's ears. They speak of a new threat, one found within the walls of Rome itself. A new religious sect, the followers of Christus, denies Nero's divinity and is rumoured to be spreading sedition.

Nero calls on his 'Hero of Rome' to become a 'Defender of Rome', to seek out this rebel sect, to capture its leader, a man known as Petrus. To fail would be to forfeit his life, and the lives of twenty thousand Judaeans living in Rome. But as Valerius begins his search, a quest that will take him to the edge of the Empire, he will discover that success may cost him nearly as much as failure.
